This recipe is not from Ukrainian cuisine and also I simplified it a lot. So it is more a recipe, as they say about the movies, “inspired” by the original recipe called Kchachapuri, from Georgian cuisine, I mean Georgia the country not the state.
Ingredients

Pastry dough – 2sheets
Cheese any kind as much as you would like about a pound or more.
Some freshly grated garlic 2-3-4 cloves or to your liking
2-3 eggs plus 1 one for glazing and closing.
Salt and pepper to taste.
A pack of pastry dough. There are two sheets per Pepperidge farm brand package. You will have to roll it out slightly so it doesn’t rise too much. Make both sheets the same size.
I like to buy couple of different kinds of cheese and mix them together, also and that is from original recipe I like to add feta cheese, the original cheese is called Suluguni, you can find it in the Russian store, if you have one around, but feta works just as well. Mix cheese, eggs, garlic, salt and pepper together spread on one sheet, leaving about ¾ of an inch of the pastry dough uncovered. Make the egg wash and using the pastry brush, brush the uncover ends. Spread the second sheet on the top. Try to make sure you push the air out as you cover it. Using a fork pock bunch of holes in the top sheet, so there is way for air to escape during baking. Using same fork pinch the ends together all around. Use the rest of the egg was h to brush the top; a little pinch of salt added to egg will help to make the top look shiny.
Bake per instruction on the box, or until the dough is baked to your liking. I like it on a bit overdone side, kind of dark golden brown.

Imitation crab Salad

Salad:

1 potato
2 carrots
2 hard boiled eggs
½ cup canned sweet pees
1-2 cup imitation crab.
1-2 table spoon mayo
Salt to taste.

1 small to medium Granny Smith apple or
1 cucumber
1 pickle.

( Last 3 items I do not use, but my mom interchangeably uses them, depending on her mood )

Boil potato in skin, carrots (I peel them before cooking), eggs. Let it cool down so you can work with them. Peel potato and eggs. I like to dice all the items very small. Mix together; add salt and mayo mix it. Yum. Add one spoon of mayo first and try, you may or may not want to add the second spoon, or maybe even third.

SALMON SALAD.

Ingredients:

Salmon, pink or red, canned (or cooked) 1-2 cans

Potatoes 2-3

Carrots 2-3

Green peas 1-2 cans

Beets 1-2 cans

Hard boiled eggs 3-4

Mayo 1 cup or so.

Little bit of water and or lemon juice to dissolve the mayo.

Salt and Pepper to taste


A tip. It works the best when you have the same amount of each ingredient and double amount of salmon (separately)


- boil potato with skin on. Peel them after they cool off.
- peel and boil carrots
- hard boiled eggs.
- canned beets (or you can boil one yourself. I don't like to do it because it takes too long), but don't use the pickled kind, they have too much vinegar in them.

All of the above can be cooked day in advance and diced or even grated on the big hole grater.

-canned peas.

optional: you can use any vegetables you like i.e. onion or green onion, corn, pickles or cucumbers, some people even put apples.

-Pink or red salmon - 1 can

(Red tastes better but is more expensive, so I usually get one of each and mix it together). Fish comes with some bones. Make sure to discard them. Or you can simply bake filet of salmon for about 15 minutes and use then instead of canned stuff.
Mix it well with a fork. I’m a lazy person J and do not like to chew, so I try to mush all my food. After that, set the spread in the middle of the serving plate and pour the mayonnaise mixture over it. Make sure to cover fish completely, it looks better when served.

-mayonnaise should be dissolved (a little bit) with water and/or lemon juice. Do not add too much juice so as not to overpower the taste of the vegetables and fish. Mayo should be liquid enough to spread over salmon but not too liquid so it runs off.

Put all the prepared veggies in a scoop around the fish. Make it look pretty by putting them in order and somewhat color coordinated.

Serve like that. It looks very pretty. After everybody stop commenting how beautiful the dish is season and mix it well all together.

Looks beautiful before it was mixed and tastes good after it is mixed, though it doesn’t look that good anymore.

In the Imitation crab Salad, substitude the imitation crab for diced chicken, or beef, or cold cuts, or any and all in any combination together. Yum.

Piroshki
1 egg
2 packs quick rising yeast
2 cups milk
A pinch of sugar and 2 of salt
4 ½ cups flour plus more for kneading
Plus oil for kneading

Warm up the milk a little bit. Add sugar, egg, yeast, and mix well. Slowly add flour mixing well. After adding all flour kneed for few minutes, until dough comes off of the walls of the container you are using. Cover with the towel. Let it rise in a worm place. It should at least double in size. When that happens push the dough down, knead for another minute divide into small portions. Like a golf ball size, flatten it put the mixture in pinch to close, fry in oil seam side down first.

Do you want hot or cold? In reality it doesn’t matter.
Thank you! It IS schav and I hadn't had it in 32 years. BTW, you can grow sorel in MN; get the seeds from Cook's Garden and plant them in a window box or flower pot, if you don't have garden space; it is a near weed.

Say away old man! It just so happens that I will copy your piroshki recipe to my recipe files, many of which are from you.

I just received a nice cook book from my Ukrainian granddaughter, her g-dmother and g-dmother's daughter. A birthday present - Украинская Кухня - Ukrainian Cuisine.

Not knowing how to read Russian I started with Rabbit stuffed with Rice. I abandoned that and am copying Onion with Milk in Cyrillic so I can take it to google translator to turn into English. Seems that it would be simplier to learn Russian doesn't it. Why Ukrainian Cusine written in Russian? We won't go into it here.

By the way Charlie, how about a couple of suggestions for the mixture to put in the piroshki. Будь ласка.
